The dealership just got my PF today so I went to see and test drive the car before sign the paper. I was really happy with the car. Really quite and comfort and soft. But when the car starts moving, the car make quite a bit of noise until it reaches 30-40km..After 30-40km it doesn't make that much noise even though I fully press the accelerator. Is it because of CVT? Or engine itself? Or maybe my first car(2011 camry HYBRID) was too quite under 60km/hr.

Completely normal. On a car with a normal automatic, there is a variance in engine hum as it climbs RPMs, shifts, drops and then climbs again. CVTs work differently. The engine goes instantly to optimal RPM for the amount of throttle you're giving it and will only back down when you let off the gas.

It's just something you get used to, though it can be an odd sensation in the first few weeks of driving.

Ah.. Yea the engine will make noise. You are just use to your camry hybrid. That thing is silent when you first start off.
